** Weirdly enough, the "Mewtwo's Origins" short, which is also the actual first 10-minute opening of the film, has yet to be released overseas passed its initial DVD release. It was dubbed into English, and they have every audio master to everything Pokemon that 4Kds dubbed, so re-inserting the segment with its dub wouldn't be that hard. It also makes some things in the film more clearer, like Mewtwo's characterization, why his Charizard, Venusaur, and Blastoise have weird markings on them, and ''why'' he came into creation in the first place. The film flows better with it, so not at least including it as at least a bonus feature for the later releases is baffling.

* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: Mew was, at least for a short period, mistakenly referred to as Mewtwo's mother rather than it's clone counterpart. This also ignores the franchise's (mostly) strict adherence to gendering Pokémon.

** Granted the actual dialogue still implies that Mew's opinion on the clones was more than a little low.
** Recently, it's been revealed that [[http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/forums/showthread.php?t=13970 the reports of the death of Mewtwo's original VA]] [[Creator/MarkTwain have been]] [[ReportsOfMyDeathWereGreatlyExaggerated greatly exaggerated]].
*** And he apparently voiced Mr. Fuji as well, instead of Creator/MaddieBlaustein.

** It is commonly believed that the movie was originally meant to be the finale of the series before the anime was renewed, due to the Japanese teaser trailer having scenes that aren't in the movie. However, the anime was renewed before the film even entered pre-production, and it was never actually intended as anything more than a side story.



** This film was originally going to serve as the finale to the series, but then the series was renewed and the whole film was rewritten. [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x4pmwla The Japanese teaser trailer]] shows clips from the original planned film.

* AbsenteeActor: Ash's Pidgeotto is nowhere to be seen in the main film and is the only member of Ash's team at the time to be absent from the fight. This was probably to avoid confusion with Corey's Pidgeot. It does appear a few times in the short film preceding the movie, though.

* ThrowItIn: The commentary remarked that Misty's "please, no" reaction to [[spoiler:Ash's death]] was originally, jokingly ad-libbed by Rachael Lillis as [[CallBack "My bike!"]] when trying to find a workable two-syllable reaction to said event.
